Have you ever scanned through Netflix and struggled to pick something? You’re not alone. With so many movies to choose from, Netflix is just plain overwhelming. On top of that, Netflix is full of cheap knock-offs and B-movies that just serve as white noise. Thankfully, they’re not all bad. Netflix does actually have a nice selection of good movies, especially the ones that didn’t get the love they deserved. Whether getting unjustly creamed by critics or failing at the box office, some underrated movies need a second chance. So, butter up your popcorn and grab that soda, here are 25 Underrated Netflix Movies.
While it’s not perfect by any means, It Follows is a horror movie that does a great job creating an eerie tension, making you always feel uncomfortable and want to look over your shoulder. Fans of old 80’s horror flicks will especially love this one. The soundtrack is sublime.
Sing Street made a splash in the indie and specialty markets but didn’t go beyond that, which is a shame because the optimistic and upbeat movie about a boy who creates a rock band to impress a model is worth everyone’s time.
We Need to Talk about Kevin
We’ll be honest, We Need to Talk about Kevin is incredibly difficult to watch. But the performances by Tilda Swinton and Ezra Miller are some of the most powerful and haunting you’ll ever see. It’s a dark story that’ll certainly have you discussing it with friends long after the credits are over.
From Mike Judge, the creator of Office Space, Extract is about an extract plant manager dealing with professional and personal problems. While it might not be as classic as Office Space, anyone looking for a good laugh will likely enjoy it.
Stardust captivated critics but was a box office flop. With magic, action, and adventure, plus an all-star cast, there’s plenty to love in this movie and no reason it should have failed so miserably at the box office. Fortunately for you, Netflix has it.
